A man from Hollister was sent to the hospital with moderate injuries following an ATV accident in a remote area of Taney County.
The Highway Patrol says 71 year old Gerold Fausett lost control of the vehicle, and it overturned down a steep incline. The accident happened Saturday morning, south of Branson, near Fausett Lane, but several hundred feet from the nearest road.
Firefighters from the Western Taney County Technical Rescue Team were called in to rescue the victim. Officials on the scene say it took approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Fausett was taken to Skaggs Regional Medical Center for treatment.
